The Phoenix Astronomical Society presents & hosts at Bookman's -

From 3:30pm to 5:30pm
PAS will be in the backroom at the Phoenix Bookman's
to assist folks in learning how to use their telescope by daylight.

Bring: Your scope, accessories, and Questions.

Weather Permitting: This event is indoors. However,
if it is raining, the event will be canceled. We do not
wish for you to bring your scope into Bookman's through
the rain. Rain is no good for your scope.

PAS Provides: Answers, one on one instruction, and handouts
helping you learn about your scope.
We also help you find your FIRST SCOPE, should you have
no clue what to purchase.

Then, after you attend the class, feel free to visit the PAS
Website Calendar
and choose a Public Star Party to attend
and get further, evening assistance with your telescope.

RSVP is required below by email, in this calendar, or by phone. . This ensures we have enough
handouts for everyone attending.
Everyone, of any age, is welcome to attend this event.

Your family can attend. While you enjoy the class, your family can
browse Bookmans Entertainment Exchange.

RSVp is open on this site until NOON the day of the event.
Afterward, you will have to call in your RSVP to Terri
at 602-561-5398 or email

Please read in the Forums for any changes to this event.

Come learn how to use your telescope and get the most
out of it!

Bookman's is located at 19th Ave & Northern, NW Corner.
The address is: 8034 N. 19th Ave. Phoenix, AZ, 85021

RSVP below, please!!!

We call it the Bookman's Telescope Workshop because PAS Is hosting this event at Bookman's Entertainment Exchange at 19th Ave and Northern, N.W. Corner, in the Musical Instrument area of the store.

This is an indoor event. Thus, only extreme weather will cancel the event, or if we do not have enough Telescope Teachers for the number of telescopes attending the event.

This is a laid back, informal instruction, usually 1 on 1, designed to give you advice on how to use your telescope by daylight. We can check your collimation, if needed, we can advise on eyepieces, we can let you know
some objects your scope will be able to see, we can provide informational handouts (help yourself to the whole table of handouts), and some star charts to get you started.

Bring with you: Your telescope, eyepieces, accessories, books, charts, anything you have for your scope that you might want to discuss its use with the PAS Telescope Teachers.

What if you don't have a telescope yet?
Come discuss scopes, their uses, the forte's, their weaknesses, the sizes, the goals you may have with your future scope... and we will help you decide which one to buy based on the discussion.
Then before you buy, attend several star parties, and ask questions, view through others scopes, learn what you need to know to make a good choice in your first telescope purchase.

After this event, sign up to attend a near by public star party or the next Telescope Workshop at PVCC, and learn to use your scope by night. The difference is literally Night and Day.

Everyone attending needs to RSVP
. No public RSVP's may cancel this event.
